As a last minute decision we decided to visit York and looked online for a b&b. This b&b was available, and how lucky we were!

In York, it makes sense as a handful of talented people have been making visitors feel welcome in this fine city for hundreds of years now. This B&B is finely kept. Cosy rooms are warm and equipped with a teapot - now there is a detail...
